How to Find the Right Floor Plan for You

If you’ve decided to start your new construction home search, you’ve made a great decision. It’s an exciting time when you get to choose the right floor plan for you. Ernest Homes knows that your floor plan decision depends on how you use your home and how it fits with your lifestyle. From where rooms are located in relation to each other, to size and shape, every part can affect your living experience, which is why it’s important to know what you really want. Let’s review how to choose the best floor plan!

Consider These Floor Plans For Your Next Move


Choosing a floor plan should start with how you envision living in your new home, what type of layout works best, and how you would use the space. Every family has their own style, so finding a floor plan that meets your needs is essential.


Single-Level Ranch-Style

Single-level ranch floor plans are a great choice for all types of families. Featuring wide-open interiors and all of the main living spaces and bedrooms on one floor. They are available in most of our communities in the Savannah area! The Laurel, the Wassaw, and the Liberty are three popular plans, and it’s not difficult to see why. We have ranch homes for sale in several communities.

The Laurel features three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, and a two-car garage, with three distinctive exterior elevation options. The kitchen area features a kitchen island and a breakfast room that leads to a spacious covered porch. You can also choose an optional door to the porch from the owner’s suite. The Laurel is available at Dunham Marsh The Villas, Wexford, and New Haven at Belmont Glen.

The Wassaw has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a two-car garage, with several elevations to choose from. The kitchen provides ample storage with its enclosed design including easy access to the laundry room for true convenience. The owner’s suite is perfectly tucked in the corner giving a unique shape and allowing for a large walk-in closet. The Wassaw is available at Dunham Marsh The Villas, Wexford, and New Haven at Belmont Glen.

The Liberty features three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a two-car garage, with two distinct elevations. The main living area is open and spacious with a well-equipped kitchen that features a large center island. The owner’s suite is set at the rear of the layout and features an owner’s bath with twin sinks, a private water closet and a large walk-in closet. The Liberty is available at Dunham Marsh The Villas and New Haven at Belmont Glen.

Townhome

Townhome floor plans are ideal for small lots or high-density neighborhoods. They can feature a variety of architectural styles, layouts, and square footage. These designs usually feature high ceilings and open living spaces. Whether for a young professional starting out or a couple looking to right-size or anything in between, our modern townhome plans are versatile enough for everyone. The New Haven Town B in our Guyton, GA community New Haven at Belmont Glen is a great option.

The New Haven Town A has four bedrooms, an owner’s suite on the main floor, two and a half bathrooms, and a one-car garage. From a spacious great room and kitchen to large bedrooms with their own closets, this plan offers all you need with additional options to fit your personal preferences.

Finding the Best Floor Plan for You!


Our floor plans help you imagine what your ideal home might feel like. A primary suite with a walk-in closet and a high ceiling. Or maybe a spacious porch or patio that’s perfect for outdoor entertainment. Your preferred features may vary depending on what stage of life you are in. Do you work from home and need an office? Are you at a point where you prefer to live all on one level? Do you want the kids to have a rec room? Think about the space you need to be comfortable with based on your daily activities.

In general, a good floor plan will allow you to better understand what kind of home might meet your wants and needs. For example, a 1- or 2-story townhome. Or a townhome vs a large estate with multiple rooms. (It’s not just where you live, but how you live!)

When you look at a floor plan, you see an aerial view of the layout of a home, broken out by different floors. You’ll see the rooms, doors, and closets, as well as how rooms are laid out and how you will move between them. Imagine yourself living in the space. Are there enough windows? How many stairs are you comfortable with? Is the dining area large enough? Is there room for guests to stay over? Pay attention to the room dimensions… will your furniture fit?
